You guys, we have all been there! Too many times, we stare at this blank cursor, wondering what the heck to blog about that day!
Here are the things that we do know about blogging:
- As Creative Entrepreneurs, we need to do it!
- Everyone says we have to blog!
- But, I don’t know what to blog about!
Go on and raise your glass if this is you!
I wanted to help other entrepreneurs with their blogging needs!
Today, I want to share with you my tips on how I create a Monthly Blogging Calendar in an Hour!
Yes, an hour!
Now, blogging is such a huge topic to talk about!! I will create a blogging series for my educational series for the month of January, so stay tuned for that!
Today though, we will be focusing on the tips for creating that monthly calendar!
Now, when its a new month, and you are looking at your blog calendar, is this what you are seeing? A blank calendar with nothing on it? Or are you more of a fly by the seat of your pants blogger?
How’s that REALLY working out for you?
Are you consistently blogging?
Is it traffic driving content?
Wouldn’t you like to know in advance what to blog about?
Then this is the place for you!
Because In an hour, I will get my monthly blog calendar from this:
And its really simple with these few tips:
Creating a blog series will help fill in your calendar with more that just work! Because yes, you should be blogging about more than work!!
Some series that I do weekly are :
Tuesday Quick Tips
Before and After
Day In the Life
You guys, the possibilities are endless!
Using a blog series will really fill in the gaps in your blogging schedule, especially if you are all tapped out on work to talk about! I! typically use two of these types a posts a week on my blog calendar.
So, after I have added my blog series topics to my calendar, now I add my work! Yes, things sometimes change throughout the month, so you can be flexible with this! But , after I do this, I am looking at a full calendar filled with content to blog about!
If you are anything like me, blogging can be a pain! I find that if I have to blog on the day that the blog is “due”, I’m either stressing, rushing, or it doesn’t get done. So, I work to stay ahead of blogging and schedule the posts to publish on a date.
I spend 1 hour first thing in the morning, and one hour in the evening blogging! If that doesn’t work for you, find pockets of time throughout the day!
And the most important tip I can give when it comes to blogging is this:
Give yourself some
Even with this calendar and these tips, you are going to get writers block, you will miss a blog post, and THAT’S OK!! Your business will not be over! Just pick back up and start again the next day!!
Hope these tips helped you to create a monthly blog calendar!
